85 You Must Have Had a Blurred Vision 3

 Other than the main house in the capital, the Vermilion Bird family had three other branches in the Longxuan Empire. Every year, the families from the other branches would report various situations to Shen Feng. The money and treasures that they had profited that year would also be handed over to the main house for distribution. Other than the Qilin Family, the main house of the other four aristocratic families in the Capital had only the appearance of luxury and richness. The other branches of their families were the ones who turned profits for them.

It was similar to organizations in the modern era. All businesses had workers who ran things for them while the president would sit in his office to devise new strategies for the company.

Soon enough, Shen Yanxiao had grasped the general principle of the Vermillion Bird Family's operations. Shen Yue and Shen Duan were very displeased with her involvements. However, due to Shen Feng's pressure and Shen Siyu's presence, they did not display their dissatisfaction in front of Shen Yanxiao. Furthermore, the Vermillion Bird had also strolled around the estate during that period, but he had managed to cause disturbances to everywhere he went.

The Vermillion Bird, who had disappeared for hundreds of years, had suddenly appeared before everyone. That was why they thought it was the proudest moment of their lives when they met him. People had started to linger around the mythical beast longer too. If the Vermillion Bird had dropped a single strand of hair, everyone else would scramble to get it. They claimed that they had wanted to collect it for that their descendants would be able to admire it.

The crazy reverence reminded Shen Yanxiao of those crazy idol fans in the twenty-fourth century.

After Shen Jiayi and Shen Jiawei returned home, they had to rest for five days before they could even walk again. When they finally could move around, they learned Shen Feng had appointed Shen Yanxiao to be his successor. The two unruly kids were dumbstruck when they learned of the news. The thought of the idiot who they had bullied frequently in the past would become the next Family Head was worse than if an outsider were to take that position.

Both of them remembered the Vermillion Bird's brutal actions toward them, and so they passed their days with their tails tucked between their legs. Every time they saw the Vermillion Bird, they would make excuses to escape his sight. They were afraid that Shen Yanxiao would use the Vermillion Bird against them as revenge for their past actions.

As for Shen Yifeng, he did not react to the news at all. Instead, he had left the Vermillion Bird Family in haste after his return, and no one knew where he went.

Shen Yanxiao did not fare any better. After they undid the second seal, Xiu had started to instruct her even more ruthlessly. During the day, she had to spend her day with Shen Siyu to learn about their family's affair, and Xiu would keep her in the room to undergo various types of training during the night.

Shen Yanxiao have not had a good night sleep for twenty days. However, her battle aura had broken through to the sixth rank. She had to choose between training as a swordsman, a knight, or an archer, and so she decided to train in the archer class because it was a class that had the highest flexibility. However, she had been unable to begin her training even after she had selected to train as a warlock and an archer due to the lack of systematic guidance. She could only persist in training her magic and battle aura daily.

As for the specialized learning in the classes that she had chosen, she decided to place her hopes on the academy. Saint Laurent Academy was the largest academy in the Longxuan Empire, and regardless of the facilities or the qualifications of the teachers, they were the top-ranked academy in the entire Brilliance Continent. Even though Shen Feng had arranged for her to enroll as an herbalist, she knew that it would be easy to obtain the skill books for magic and battle aura specializations after she entered the academy.
